Hydrangea Blooms Thinking of You + Video


Hello!  My project today is a set of clean and simple 'Thinking of You' Hydrangea Blooms cards using the beautiful Hydrangea Blooms stamp & die set from Simon Says Stamp with the sentiment from the Papertrey Ink Tucked In: Thinking of You stamp set.  The Spellbinder Nestabilities Classic Rectangle LG was also used on this project.


What started out as a project for one card turned into a set of 6.  I was having too much fun inking up this beautiful hydrangea blooms that I didn't want to stop! 

The MISTI precision stamping tool and my homemade vinyl grid templates made it so easy getting the sentiment perfectly aligned and quickly mass produced of these cards!


The hydrangea blooms and leaves were stamped with the Simon Says Stamp ink pads Hydrangea and Jellybean onto Bazzill Marshmallow cardstock. Then cut out using the coordinating dies and Sizzix Big Shot die cutting machine.

Assembling pieces:  A2 folded card base (4.25x5.50 finished), A2 panel, hydrangea, leaves and 'Thinking of You' sentiment panel.  The sentiment was stamped with Simon Says Stamp ink pad Intense Black.

HOW TO CREATE A2 (4.25x5.50) CARD BASE:  

Take each 8 1/2x11 size cardstock in Bazzill Marshmallow, Bazzill Sour Grape and the Reverse Confetti Piggy Bank and cut in half at 5 1/2".  Then score each half at the 4 1/4" mark using a scoring board and bone fold.

Challenges I'd like to play along this week: TTCRD - May 16th ATG; Jo's Scrap Shack - FFC #188 AG with a Twist, Crafting from the Heart - ATG #159, Crafts Galore Encore - May's ATG, Crafty Cardmakers - #188 Add A Sentiment, Word Art Wednesday - ATG #282-283.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today and sharing your thoughts with me.   May you have a beautiful rest of your day.  Take care!
